Edsel and Edward Frazier celebrated their 88th birthday on March 13 at Patty’s Restaurant in Smithville. Family and friends, along with several sets of twins gathered to help them enjoy their special day.
The Frazier twins were born at their Dry Creek home in 1926 to Robert Lee and Hassie Frazier. They later served in World War II as soldiers in the United States Army. Edsel and Edward both moved to Smithville as young men, where Edsel retired from the United States Postal Service and Edward continued to work in the nursey named Frazier Brother’s Nursery. It is the oldest nursery in the state, and Edward brags that he has never had the business closed in 68 years.
Edward served as Smithville Mayor for two terms and alderman for many years. He still remains active in local politics.
Edsel also enjoys being a Mason and still loves to work in the nursery when possible.
They both attribute their “old age” to hard work, good gens, and staing active. Both have great-granchildren now to keep them young.
